"There comes a time in every rightly constructed boy's life that he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure."
-------Mark Twain, Writer and Humorist
From the Book Cover:
Shelby Ferris and David Carson, seniors at Texas A&M, have shared a long friendship. On their last spring break trip before graduation, they set out to discover the secrets of the Ghost Lights of Marfa. Despite their many adventurers and discoveries, nothing could prepare them for what they encounter one lonely night on the West Texas prairie. They discover a cold, dark cave ... a gateway to a world where history meets legend. They find a place known only to the long-lost civilizations of the Anasazi, the Nephilim, and the Tekoans. It’s a world of danger that casts a glint of understanding on many of the dark, unanswered hollows in our own history.
Their courageous journey illustrates the character of the American spirit. Shelby and David display the strength of solid, unblemished character as they battle ancient myths and solve grand mysteries. It is a story embraced in scientific fact while enjoying the latitude of scientific fantasy.
